Predict risks . Reduce bottlenecks.
Manufacturing & Quality Control departments today have plenty of sources of information – ERP/ CRM/ Procurement, MES, Equipment Sensors, Time logs and so on. But, regulatory requirements, cost constraints, rising quality expectations and demand uncertainty have forced managers to take decisions at a quicker pace than ever before. This has resulted in disruptions because of decisions being based on instinct rather than analysis of data.
OpsVeda – Manufacturing brings together data from various sources to provide real-time visibility to managers about likely disruptions on the shop-floor based on rules they define. The early highlighting of relevant exceptions among the sea of data enables proactive preventive action.
- Complicated business processes
- Constant shift level changes
- Deep traceability requirements (regulatory)
- Extensive documentation requirements
- Too many systems
- Shift change complexities
- Up/ Down stream visibility & Impact assessment
- Adherence to schedule
- Keeping documentation and process in sync
- Single workbench for the operations user
Single workbench for the operations user
OpsVeda brings together the information you need from all the specialized systems. Users see details of the entire sequence of activities in one shot. All documentation can be accessed in context of the production order transactions. The system is also a single window for all KPIs across departments including Adherence to Schedule. Drill-down from the KPI to the underlying transactional elements help pin-point sources of abnormal performance.
- Cross-functional view of production activities
Cross-functional view of production activities
Schedules of every function is transparent to the other through a common Gantt chart. The Gantt chart takes data from every system and gets updated in real-time. This reduces shift handover challenges and makes sure that schedules of one department does not conflict that of another.
- Visibility to the complete batch genealogy
Visibility to the complete batch genealogy
Often problems detected at any stage of the production process requires examination of the upstream and downstream stages to assess root-cause and impact. In OpsVeda, the entire tactical batch genealogy is displayed in the form of a tree, including related information about upstream batches. The problem batches are highlighted in a different color. One screen tells the user about issues with input batches and all the downstream batches that have been affected.
- In-context collaboration
Production & Quality Control tasks involve plenty of day-to-day fine tuning and constant interaction with the extended team. OpsVeda provides an in-mail feature that can keep all such collaborative interactions in context of the tasks at hand. No more lost messages and out-of-context interpretations.
Improved adherence to schedule: Common visibility to tasks across departments through intuitive dashboards, leads to improved planning and tracking of production tasks. This in turn results in better on-time performance.
Efficient quality reviews: With inputs from every department at the finger tips of quality control, and easy batch traceability, the stage is set for timely and efficient quality reviews.
Improved hand-overs: Unstructured communication and workflows in context of production tasks allows for better shift-handover, effective planning and overall improved collaboration.
